“Skid row, my friend, symbolizes the unparalleled personal and individual freedom that this country grants its people.
It’s not about a lack of chances.
It’s about having the strength to grab chances.
If you fail you experience that failure utterly.
If you succeed you are rewarded without limit.
It’s a true test of the human spirit.
You sink or you swim by the virtue of your own intelligence, gifts and talents.”
(Lou, 41, homeless)
